Journey to Iwate

Iwate is the second-largest prefecture in Japan, located in the Tohoku region in the northeast of the country’s main island. Iwate is known for its stunning landscapes from mountains and valleys to a spectacular coastline. Take a masterclass in Japanese culture and folk tales in Tono Valley, explore the Ryusendo Cave and its underground lakes in Iwaizumi, or visit the seaside. The coast is part of the Sanriku Fukko National Park that stretches out along the Pacific Ocean. In Miyako City, a main fishing port, you can enjoy local seafood and scenic spots like Jodogahama Beach and the Blue Cave.

Tottori Travel Guide

Tottori Prefecture is located along the Sea of Japan. Its capital is Tottori City, famous for the large area of sand dunes just outside of the city. The biggest dunes have a great view of the beautiful coast which is part of the San’in Kaigan National Park. The Sand Museum here shows sculptures made from sand, every year with a different theme. Outside the capital, you can explore cliffs and sea caves or venture inland to more off-the-beaten-track destinations. To relax and recover your strengths, unwind in the hot springs of MisasaOnsen and taste some of the local cuisine.

Visit Kesennuma, Miyagi

Kesennuma is located on the Sanriku Coast in Miyagi Prefecture in the north of Japan’s main island, Honshu. The city has a large fishing port and its fish market is one of the biggest in Japan. Oshima island is part of the city. The tsunami caused by the 2011 Tohoku Earthquake hit Kesennuma’s waterfront area hard, but the city has been recovering. Now there are again many places where you can enjoy delicious local seafood and sake. For good views of the coast and the port, walk up Mount Anba. There are several viewpoints along the trail to the summit.
